has been a mainstay of the comedy world since he first performed at Catch a Rising Star in the early 90s. He has brought his stand-up act across the country for years, including an appearance on Carlos Mencia’s Punisher Tour, and earning a very rare standing ovation on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
. His perennially sold-out tours have led to two Comedy Central specials: Don’t Make Him Angry
and Jo Koy Lights Out
. When not performing standup, he can be seen on Chelsea Lately
, or a variety of other comedic TV programs.
